    Cant for the life of me get it to work.

    The Sourcery settings script to install GB keyboard puts com.android.inputmethod.gbltn-1.apk into the /data/app folder on the phone. It works fine as is.

    problem is...I want to include the themed keyboard (which has always worked for me like this) Install LatinIME.apk to /system/app...delete LatinIMEGoogle.apk if its there. Reboot.

    This is not working for me on sourcery. I cant figure out why. Ive managed to install a themed "android" keyboard, but it kills the suggested words feature.

    This is becoming frustrating as I cannot think of any way to get it working.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    see attachment...remove the .zip from the end.

    I had this happen with Incinerated ... users have to install the sourcery GB keyboard prior to loading the theme. After that all was good. Not the ideal solution but I haven't had ppl complain ... probably cuz nobody is using it :p

    liking it

    very fast. even regina launcer no lag. there is some light bleed on top and bottom kinda like on alot of tv's its minimal and only noticible with black blacks but not bothersome, i mention because alot of people are complaining about it its not a big deal. some have complained of reboots i havent seen any go launcher live wallpaper did lock it up needed a battery pull but sure not the phones fault. havent had enough time to test it yet but looks good so far. i lowered my verizon service to as low as i could go but got a new number for now will port over after i decide its a keeper.

    still doesnt work. Just force closing on the keyboard even if I install the GB keyboard via sourcery settings first.

    Not going to include it

    That's weird ... I would get the FC's too but once I installed the GB KB from the Sourcery settings and reapplied the theme all was good.

    Yank, I did what you suggested on your excellent Incinerated theme, and it worked fine for me. I'm not running Sourcery anymore, but I wanted to let you know that installing the GB keyboard *before* installing the theme seemed to be the ticket.
